Apple Sues HTC, the Maker of Google’s Nexus One Phone - NYTimes.com

More details on Apple/HTC

As with all patent cases, a decision or settlement could hinge on whether lawyers for HTC — and perhaps Google, if they decide to help — can find “prior art” that demonstrates Apple’s innovations were not all that novel.

Such a task may not be that difficult. Palm sold touch-based mobile phones for years before the introduction of the iPhone, and is believed to have a large portfolio of patents. Synaptics, based in Santa Clara, Calif., is also a major owner of intellectual property related to touch screens.
